The ZUMspot paired with open source software Pi-Star forms a digital hotspot to allow access to the internet of all digital radio modes while owning just one digital mode radio. The ZUMspot incorporates a 10 mw transceiver which will communicate with a digital radio designed for DMR, D-STAR, Yaesu System Fusion, P25 and NXDN and allows that radio to connect via the internet to all the listed modes. With an optional Nextion video display you can monitor traffic visually as it is processed through the ZUMspot. The photo shows the ZUMsport with optional case and a 3.2 inch Nextion display with optional case.
Several club members currently own and operate the ZUMspot so check in on the Net or at the Wednesday Koffee Klatch to find out more about this Technology.

Some additional information;
Pi-Star is great software for digital voice hotspots and repeaters. It can handle DMR, D-STAR, and YSF,
and even P25, NXDN, and YSF and DMR cross modes when used with a multi-mode digital voice
modem that supports those mode
The ZUMspot RPi is an advanced radio module board.
Paired with a Raspberry Pi and the MMDVM (Pi-Star in this case) software becomes a small and efficient multi-mode digital hotspot.
